In response to the pandemic the global economy must now reassess and reimagine modes of consumption, supply, interaction, productivity and, last but not least – security. What does the accelerated move into digital modes mean for cyber risks?

Countering cyber threats successfully requires a focus on human behaviour as well as technology enhancement. This networking webinar brings together two academic experts to look at both digital security by design and human factors, and will review key areas of concern for cyber risk altered by Covid-19 and their long term effects.


Prof SIMON MOORE , Department for Computer Science and Technology: “Toward trustworthy computer systems”

Simon conducts research and teaching in the general area of computer architecture with particular interests in secure and rigorously-engineered processors and subsystems, such as memory-protection features that safeguard against many currently widely exploited vulnerabilities. He is a leading contributor to the CHERI project (Capability Hardware Enhanced RISC Instructions) for digital security by design.

Dr JENNIFER DAFFRON , Research Associate, Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies: “Increased rate of digitisation in response to Covid-19 – what it means for cyber risk moving forward”

Jennifer leads the research on digital risk at the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies. Her research defines and exposes cyber threat vulnerabilities on organisational and human behavioural platforms for companies around the world. Jennifer holds a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Cambridge and has published several papers on attentional templates in visual search.
